Meet Your Major

Status message

Please note that this event has already occurred.
Mandatory event for all first-year and new transfer students

First-year and new transfer students will meet with their academic department as part of the annual Meet Your Major event. This mandatory event for all new students is an opportunity to:

  • Introduce students to the faculty within the department
  • Review the curriculum requirements, recommendations, and opportunities so that students understand the path to graduation
  • Identify the faculty advisors for each student and overview the process for contacting and meeting with them
  • Discuss major-specific information like minors, concentrations, internships, and more
  • Hear from upperclass students within the major 
  • Learn about upcoming events, activities, student organizations, resources, and other department-specific initiatives or opportunities that students will want to take advantage of to help complement their academic experience

Meet Your Major occurs for all majors from 11 am-12 pm specified locations will be posted in late August. Students should note that:

  • If you are currently double-majoring, you should choose one of the majors to attend and follow up with the department afterward to gather information for the other major
  • Education majors will meet with their second major/interest area from 11 am-12 pm and then meet from 12-1 pm with the School of Education (see below for specifics)

Undeclared students have a special meeting 11 am-12 pm to review the process to declare a major, how to find a major, how to utilize your advisor, etc. If an undeclared student is (1) sure of their intended major, and (2) sure that they will be accepted to that major they can attend that major's session. Otherwise, all undeclared students should attend the undeclared session. If you have questions, contact FYE for advice on which session to attend.

Find your meeting location.
